I just got in my Veloce cassette and was disappointed to see that it was not chrome plated as I thought. It is galvanized. In the past I always had good luck with chrome plated cassettes regarding wear. Can anyone tell me if I should spring another $10 for the Centaur that is chrome plated vs. galvanized?

No, I was more thinking about the quality and hardness of the steel cogs. I know chrome plated is more harder than gavanization. But on the other hand, the knifes edge of the cog would probably take little time to break through any plate, then it would be up to the hardness of the steel to repel wear.
